Ilze Fox

Having travelled extensively and worked abroad in the UK and Taiwan, Ilze knows what makes Africa a stand-out destination. Her special skill is working with small and large groups where her thoughtfulness and unflappable nature are key to the success of complex tour itineraries. As a result she is responsible for many ‘thank you for our trip-of-a-lifetime’ emails. She is particularly knowledgeable about the ins and outs and best times to visit East Africa or go gorilla trekking. Always keen to explore new destinations, Ilze and her husband (also in tourism) love the great outdoors, camping and hiking.
